Barbequing is a social and communal activity, where one can relax and chat with friends and family whilst cooking a meal to share. The good news is you don’t need to wait for summer to start before you can enjoy this treat. With many BBQ options available, you can find the perfect one to suit your needs, whatever the occasion or the season.

There are three options available - gas, coal and electric. So which one is the most suitable for your needs?

  • When shopping for your own grilling partner, it’s recommended to consider how often you will use the BBQ, the number of people you will cook for, and your budget. Gas grills can be propane-powered or natural gas. The propane-powered grills will include a number of features like temperature controls, side burners and cabinets. They are also very easy to clean. Natural gas grills are known to heat up quickly. They are recommended for many households since this is readily available and there’s an endless supply of fuel. The other option is electric-based grill which can be portable and easy to use. But, if you are a BBQ enthusiast, then the coal-powered BBQ is your best bet. When using this type of BBQ, you can easily cook meat at high temperature, sealing in the juice, and at the same time cooking the meat in a slow manner. The end result is a meat that is cooked perfectly with that authentic smoky flavour.


  • Keep the location in mind of where you wish to place you BBQ. Is it on a covered patio? Or exposed to the elements? There are many different types of finishes on BBQ’s. Just two examples are, powder coated steel and stainless steel. Powder Coated Steel works best when under cover as it does not handle the element as well as Stainless Steel. Stainless Steel BBQ’s work in all outdoor entertaining spaces as they provide a nice ambiance and a modern feel to the space. They also do not rust and are easy to clean.
